  • 8-32 (M4), 6-32 (M3), and 4-40 (M2) Taps
  • 100 TPI Adjusters
  • ±5° Yaw Adjustment, ±3.5° Pitch Adjustment, 0.12" (3 mm) Linear Translation (X, Y, and Z)
  • 62.5 mm (2.46") Deck Height Compatible with 3-Axis Flexure Stages

The PY005-K1(/M) includes a PY005(/M) stage, a PY005A2(/M) pedestal base, and a top plate that give the PY005 a 62.5 mm (2.46") deck height. The top plate features 8-32, 6-32, and 4-40 taps, as well as a 3.0 mm alignment groove for fiber accessories (see table below). For the location of these taps, please click on the info icons in the table to the right. The stage provides five axes of adjustment in an ultra-compact package. It has five 100 TPI actuators which can adjust the pitch, yaw, and X, Y, and Z positions of the stage's top mounting platform. Two actuators together control yaw and Y-axis, two actuators together control pitch and Z-axis, and a single actuator controls the X translation. The actuators have a 5/64" (2 mm) hex for adjustments with a hex key or our HKTS-5/64 hex key thumbscrews.

Roll and Pitch Tilt Platform

Travel Range +4°/-8° per Axis

Tilt Platform Thickness 24 mm
AMA027

Features

  • Roll & Pitch Platform
  • Height can be Varied by ±4 mm
  • Adds Two Additional Degrees of Freedom to a 3-Axis Flexure Stage System

The AMA027 is intended to allow an angled optical component to be positioned in front of one of our 3-Axis flexure stages. This add-on stage provides pitch and roll adjustment using the two labeled thumbscrews indicated in the photograph. Both the roll and pitch adjustment provide -8º/+4° of range and use of all three adjusters allows for the adjustment of the overall height of the platform. The amount of height adjustment ranges from -1 mm to +4 mm around the nominal height of 62.5 mm for the entire assembly.

Although it was designed for use with our family of three axis flexure stages; RollerBlock™, MicroBlock™ and NanoMax300™, this same Roll and Pitch device is also available for use with our 4, 5, and 6-Axis stages by substituting the Ø1" post included with the platform for a longer one.

The APR001 provides pitch and roll adjustment about the optical axis. It was designed for use with our NanoMax, MicroBlock, and RollerBlock families of 3-Axis Stages and provides a cost efficient upgrade to 5-axis positioning. The thumbscrew drives allow adjustment up to ±4° per axis with an accuracy of 10 arcsec.

Typical applications include angled pigtails and placement of components requiring only moderate resolution and manual adjustment on the angular axes. All standard Nanopositioning accessories may be fitted to the platform by means of the keyway interface.


2-Axis Platform

The APR001 comprises a pitch and roll platform together with a mounting post. The post is mounted directly to an optical table such that the top surface of the platform is at the proper beam height when placed in front of the Stage.

Mating components can then be attached to the platform and adjusted in roll & pitch.

The mounting post included produces an optical height of 75 mm (62.6 mm post plus 12.5 mm accessory height). The photo to the right shows the APR001 mounted in front of our NanoMax 3-axis flexure stage.


2-Axis Platform

Alternatively, the pitch and roll platform can be removed from the post, and fixed directly to the stage, in place of the standard top plate. This allows components mounted on the stage to be adjusted in roll and pitch and raises the optical axis height by 15 mm, from 75 mm to 90 mm.

An angle bracket and spacer block kit is available separately (see below), which raises mating components to the same height. The photo to the left shows the APR001 fitted to a NanoMax stage, with the ABS002 Angle Bracket fitted to the side face.

  • As measured on the micrometer

The APY002 provides pitch and yaw adjustment about the optical axis. It was designed for use with our NanoMax, MicroBlock, and RollerBlock families of 3-Axis Stages and provides a cost efficient upgrade to 5-axis positioning. The micrometer drives offer precise control: 1° of pitch rotation relates to 0.86 mm micrometer movement (1 mm = 1.16°) while 1° of yaw rotation relates to 0.91 mm of micrometer movement (1 mm = 1.1°).

Typical applications include angled pigtails and placement of components requiring only moderate resolution and manual adjustment on the angular axes. All standard Nanopositioning accessories may be fitted to the platform by means of the keyway interface.


Pitch Yaw Platform

The APY002 comprises a pitch and yaw platform together with a mounting post.The post is mounted directly to an optical table such that the top surface is at the proper beam height when placed in front of the Stage.

Mating components can then be attached to the platform and adjusted in pitch and yaw.

The mounting post included produces an optical height of 75 mm (62.6 mm post plus 12.5 mm accessory height). The photo to the right shows the APY002 mounted in front of our Microblock 3-axis flexure stage.

Alternatively, the pitch and yaw platform can be removed from the post, and fixed directly to the stage, in place of the standard top plate. This allows components mounted on the stage to be adjusted in pitch and yaw, and raises the optical axis height by 15 mm, from 75 mm to 90 mm.

PY003 Platform Shown on a Ø1.5" Post and BA2 Base

Features

  • ±4° Total Tilt per Axis
  • Precision Micrometer Head Actuators
  • Adds Two Additional Degrees of Freedom to a 3-Axis Flexure Stage System

The PY003(/M) Tilt Platform provides ±4° of micrometer adjustment of both pitch and yaw. It is designed to offer a compact pitch- and yaw-adjustable mounting platform with both 1/4"-20 (M6) and 8-32 (M4) threaded mounting holes.

When used with a post assembly, this pitch and yaw platform can be mounted to an optical table such that the top surface is at the proper beam height for your application. For use with the Thorlabs NanoMax, MicroBlock, or RollerBlock three-axis stages, the post and base from the AMA029A post assembly provides a deck height of 62.5 mm. Other post assembly heights are also available.

Note: If your application requires a grooved top plate, for use with our extensive range of nanopositioning accessories (fiber holders, fiber chucks, fiber rotators, microscope objective holders etc.), please see the APY001 and APY002 detailed above.

Smart Pack

  • Reduce Weight of Packaging Materials
  • Increase Usage of Recyclable Packing Materials
  • Improve Packing Integrity
  • Decrease Shipping Costs

Thorlabs' Smart Pack Initiative is aimed at waste minimization while still maintaining adequate protection for our products. By eliminating any unnecessary packaging, implementing packaging design changes, and utilizing eco-friendly packaging materials for our customers when possible, this initiative seeks to improve the environmental impact of our product packaging. Products listed above are now shipped in re-engineered packaging that minimizes the weight and the use of non-recyclable materials.b As we move through our product line, we will indicate re-engineered packages with our Smart Pack logo.

  • Travel-based emissions reduction calculations are estimated based on the total weight reduction of packaging materials used for all of 2013’s product sales, traveling 1,000 miles on an airplane, to provide general understanding of the impact of packaging material reduction. Calculations were made using the EPA’s shipping emissions values for different modes of transport.
  • Some Smart Pack products may show a negative weight reduction percentage as the substitution of greener packaging materials, such as the Greenwrap, at times slightly increases the weight of the product packaging.

Response from Buki at Thorlabs to Harald: We have contacted you directly to determine the specific platform model for which you need load capacity. We are also working to add this information to our website. Please contact TechSupport@thorlabs.com if you have further questions.

What weight load can this platform support. I am looking for a pan-tilt unit to accurately adjust a vertically mounted camera. The camera, with brackets, weighs ~1lb
